Stayed here for 7 nights with a tent while exploring the whole Danube region and Vienna.
There is plenty of room for tents. Electrical hook-ups have reserved bays, while those of us without electricity just find a space and set up. It's not really a problem because most tenters are cyclists who arrived in the evening and are gone again by morning.
There is a toilet block right next to the tent area. Showers worked well and temperature was good. However, there was only one urinal and only three toilets in the men's section. This meant that around 8am and 5pm each day, there was a big queue of men pooing and showering. More toilets were needed for a park of its size. My girlfriend found that the ladies toilets were fine, however there were only two plug sockets and were in a cubicle.
There's also a kitchen area. There are four sinks for washing up and two electric hobs with two rings each for cooking on. Prepare for a queue around dinner time. There's also an honesty fridge and we had nothing go missing. There's also a washing machine and a dryer. Each one costs 3.50 EUR which is far too expensive That's 7 EUR to do your washing! The machines are so dated anyway that they don't wash your clothes fully and they come out dripping because the spin function is so poor. They need modernising! There's also a washing line to dry your clothes on, but bring your pegs as there aren't any.
We hired bikes from reception one day to cycle a section of the Danube. They cost 10 EUR each for a full day. The price is reasonable, but the bikes are poor. We weren't given bikes the correct size for us and the ancient gear system on the bikes means that if you backpedal even just a little bit, the brakes are applied and you stop! Dangerous.
The staff on reception were also a bit vacant. At one point, I had to get out of my car and go in to reception to ask them to open the entrance barrier because they were too busy chatting to each other to notice a car wanted to come in (They have to raise the barrier each time you want to come in). They also rolled their eyes at me when I tried to pay a 40 EUR bill with a 100 EUR note. I always felt like I was bothering them and an inconvenience to them. Not the attitude for someone working in customer service.
There's a Spar shop just a 500 metre walk away that sells food and stuff at very good prices. A can of beer was just 45 cents. There's also the tennis club just outside the campsite. It's drinks are cheaper than the campsite bar.
Also, mosquitoes are very common here! Bring your mozzie spray and citronella candles. I'm now nursing 18 different bites!
Overall, a very good campsite and would probably come back again.
